Finished Quilt and Many More Projects...

I bought a pattern for this quilt, but I cannot find it anywhere in my house and I don't remember the name of the pattern either. I just wanted to make sure that you know this is not my design. When I saw the sample quilt on the wall I fell in love with it and really wanted to make one ....more

When I am making jewelry for a particular person, I imagine that person and her favorite colors, personality type, and style and then go from there. It is a bit different than my normal design process, but I enjoy both paths.I made this one at the end of summer for my friend who loves red ....more
